[movies]GLAST's LAT Instrument - NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Conceptual Image Lab
The Large Area Telescope (LAT) detects gamma rays by using Einstein's famous equation (E=mc(squared)) in a technique known as pair production. When a gamma ray, which is pure energy, slams into a layer of tungsten in one of the Tracker's towers, it can create a pair of subatomic particles (an electron and its antimatter counterpart, a positron). The direction of the incoming gamma ray is determined by projecting the direction of these particles back to their source using several layers of high-p...

[movies]The GLAST Spacecraft in Orbit - NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Conceptual Image Lab
GLAST will be launched into a circular orbit around the Earth at an altitude of about 560 km (350 miles). At that altitude, the observatory will circle Earth every 90 minutes. In sky-survey mode, GLAST will be able to view the entire sky in just two orbits, or about 3 hours. Because gamma rays in the GLAST's energy band are unable to penetrate the Earth's atmostphere, it is essential that GLAST perform its observations from space...

[movies]Gamma Ray Creation - NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Conceptual Image Lab
Gamma rays are the highest-energy forms of light in the electromagnetic spectrum and they can have over a billion times the energy of the type of light visible to the human eye. Gamma rays can be created in several different ways: a high-energy particle can collide with another particle, a particle can collide and annihilate with its anti-particle, an element can undergo radioactive decay, or a charged particle can be accelerated...
